I am queasy most of the time. Eating fixes it. So I eat. And unlike my diet pre-pregnancy, I eat carbs. I'm also exhausted. So I rest. Very little exercise.
Big surprise, I've gained 6 pounds in the past month. ARG! I definitely don't *need* that much for the pregnancy.
I suppose I'm happy to have this annoyance rather than vomiting all day long, but since a DDC is a place one is allowed to vent, I thought I might as well go ahead and voice my complaints with myself and the hormones. I'm contemplating pushing myself back towards the paleo-style eating I'd been doing before. Good for me, good for baby, just need to bear through the quease...
I'm having a similar experience, and, really I'm trying not to worry about it. I've discovered that I'm actually a pretty crummy mom to my dd when I'm feeling sick and cranky- so I'm trying really hard to just keep myself above the nausea. And, honestly, if ANY food sounds good to me at any time-- I'm pretty darn happy about that, and likely to go for it! Of all the things that I could be worrying about, I've decided that what I eat is not goign to be one of them. I just want to keep this bod revving and be decent to my family. And sometimes that takes a muffin.
Awe, I feel I should mention that I'm not worried about weight based on vanity, but rather my health! In the past five years I've learned how much better I feel and how much more *able* I am when I eat veggies and proteins almost exclusively. Eating all the the rice and bagels that I've been eating may stave off queasiness for a few minutes, but I think I won't like the longer-term consequences.
I find the more carbs/sugar I eat, the more I feel like crap. My midwife suggested that gaining somewhat less than 45+ lbs would improve my VBAC chances. I like to think it doesn't matter, but I definitely struggled getting around at the end of my pg with the extra weight. OTOH, I'm not sure I'm entirely in control. I think some people just tend to gain more than others, and you can't punish yourself over numbers. My mom gained 60+ lbs with her singleton pgs, and she has always been super athletic and healthy. I dunno.
